"It Costs More to Spend Less"

Total Cost after 6 Months: $1410

Now, let's see what happens when money gets tight and a person decides to skip a month of advertising...but, first, let's be honest. Every person who skips a month of advertising when things get tight, does it more than once. In fact, it becomes a pattern: money is tight - skip advertising this month.

So, let's say, this person has advertised three months out of six. After six months, they will have spent a total of $960 -- a savings of $450. But WAIT -- they're not even breaking even with their expenses yet!

So, they work another six months and, again, they advertise three months out of six. They spend another $960 and finally get into profit.

However, they have now spent $1920 to get into profit ($510 more than they would have spent if they hadn't "saved" money on advertising)...


...they have lost SIX MONTHS of PROFITS they could have been earning!

I think you'll agree, this is getting EXPENSIVE!!

And this example is for a LOW-COST program -- just think how much extra money you would spend if you were working a program that cost $165 each month instead of $60 to remain eligible for commissions, and you decided to "save" money on advertising.

I don't know about you, but I would rather spendrepparttar money up front, invest in my business, and get into profit as quickly as possible so I can maximizerepparttar 117561 time I am EARNINGrepparttar 117562 money I got into business to make.
